Summary: The LG Optimus 7 is one of the more affordable Windows Phone 7 handsets, yet it feels reassuringly solid and responsive. It could be some time before it offers the app-tastic pleasures of its competitors, though.
Cons: Wobbly buttons on the front; app store is just getting going.
Conclusion: At first glance, the LG Optimus 7 is a great looking handset. Although the screen is gorgeous, the buttons and overall build quality are disappointing. We'd like to see a better camera to set the handset apart, but we definitely approve of the inclusion of Play to DLNA which gives the LG Optimus 7 an edge.
Summary: After years of delays, Microsoft has finally stepped up to the plate and put forth a completely new smartphone operating system: Windows Phone 7. The LG Optimus 7, which will be offered by Telus in Canada and by multiple carriers in Europe, is one of the initial batch of WP7 smartphones to be announced.
Pros: Slick and simple UI, good camera, Wi-Fi music sync, solid build and reception, accurate text input
Cons: Abysmal speakerphone, no 3rd party app multi-tasking or copy/paste, few applications available, no task switcher

Summary: The LG Optimus 7 may lack any 'wow' factor, but it is still an impressively constructed smartphone that benefits from Microsoft's slick Windows Phone 7 operating system. The Optimus 7 could well be the best LG smartphone we've seen in a long time.
Pros: 16GB internal memory, good build quality, relatively compact for a smartphone with a 3.8in screen
Cons: No memory card slot for extra storage, physical keys aren't backlit
Conclusion: Apart from the camera, the other prominent multimedia features of any mobile phone are the music and video player. LG E900 includes a good media player that can play diverse music files such as MP3/ WAV/ WMA/ eAAC+, and a video playback that can stream MP4/ H.264/ H.263/ WMV files. The music lovers can further access to the Stereo FM radio for more choices of music. Overall, LG E900 Optimus 7 looks like a promising mobile phone.
